Any show that begins with the band setting us up for an adventure such as the Touch>Scarlet opener can't be called overrated.
We all love the magical organic shows where the band is hitting on all cylinders, perhaps even surprising themselves. But equally enjoyable are those shows where you witness the thought the band puts into creating the setlist and then goes out and tries to flawlessly execute it. Effort is on display. This is one of those shows.

Going to go ahead and give this one a five, if for no other reason than to boost that average rating - this is filled with absolutely *fine* music.
Set 1 - who would have predicted Touch > Scarlet? It sounds as good as you think - rest of the set dialed in A++, from the crazy psychedelia of Rooster to the electric fire of Let it Grow, this is one for the books.
Set 2 - pre-Drums is one of those jaw-droppers. There's a rather *shaky* but still watchable video over on youtube for this set, and it's fun to have context to everything....*dig* the crazy, off-the-cuff feel the first half of the set contains! Post-Space they're a bit of a different band - Truckin' goes absolutely nowhere, but check Jer's solo on Wharf Rat and again on Stones and NFA - the man was absolutely possessed when it was time for instrumentation. The post-Space set, despite these fireworks, still sounds jittery, but that the hell - they pull it off.
A great night with the band - I think that solo in Wharf Rat is easily one of the most sublime moments of this MSG run -

Another great MSG show
Wow... interesting set list. Brent brought a lot to the band.... lots of energy & fun. Great recording! Thanks Charlie Miller. (I think I worked with you Charllie. For a short time in a drafting department in Garden City... early 80's)

Don't be a fool - JayRo
JayRo, this show isn't overrated - the band always pulled out all the stops when they rolled into NYC. It's NYC for f#$%'s sake and one can bet that Jerry wasn't telling the band to play a crappy show. You're a fool JayRo and don't let your momma tell you otherwise. I'm sick of ignorant pundits like you criticizing performances that you weren't even present for.
Charlie M, thanks for posting this. It was a great show that night in NYC.

Nice song selection and high energy/anticipation during beginning of 1st set, but nothing spectucular happened. JG vocals are a little rough, especially during a decent Touch>Scarlet opener and High Time. Nice guitar work in Little Red Rooster despite some technical issues which make BW guitar sound not quite right at some points. The remainder of the show is average at best. Another of the late 80s/early 90s MSG shows I've been listening to lately which have been overrated on this site.

A good show. Brent was having a ball it sounds like. I like 9-18-87 better myself. I am always amazed when I am the first to review a Charlie Miller remaster. The sound is good.
